CMW, the contemporary music group directed by James Dillon and Noriko Kawai, will give a rare performance of Gyorgy Ligeti'sAventures and Nouvelles Aventures on 4 November 2011 at the Ted Mann Concert Hall, University of Minnesota.
The works are "mimodramas" for three vocalists and a small instrumental ensemble, where abstract phonetic sounds take the place of text, creating startling aural effects and projecting a broad range of emotions, while parodic elements add a touch of levity.
For more information on the performance, please visit the CMW Website.
